Join North Spore Mushrooms for an informative mushroom walk and learn about cultivation, foraging, and local mushroom species of Maine hosted at Pineland Farms. Add to your knowledge or learn a new skill, all levels and ages are welcome!
North Spore is based out of Westbrook and specializes in fresh mushroom cultivation as well as producing “mushroom spawn” for home growers and mushroom farms.
These walks are a great time to learn and ask all of your mushroom questions! Walks meet outside of the Education Barn. Baskets or mesh bags and pocket knives are encouraged for collecting.
Participants are limited. Select your time slot and number of tickets below. Educator led activities require all participants to wear masks. Be prepared to be outside for the entirety of the program.

Directions to the Education Barn: Follow GPS directions to the Market at 15 Farm View Drive, New Gloucester, Maine. Continue past the Market on Farm View Drive and take your first left onto Valley Farm Rd. Follow Valley Farm Rd. until you see the Smokehouse Visitors Center (white silo) on the right hand side. Take the right hand turn immediately after the Smokehouse down to the Family Farmyard. The Education Barn is the largest barn on the farmyard.
We ask that all guests above the age of two carry a facial covering with them when visiting Pineland Farms. Facial coverings are required during educator led experiences when social distances cannot be maintained. During most of your on-farm experience, you will not need to wear a facial covering.
